ok... i have the ltmdm installed. i run the nothing happens.
i load the ltmdm module manualy with kldload. it's loaded. now what?

here is what i have for a modem:

none1 at pci0:31:6:        class=0x070300 card=0x051a1014 chip=0x24868086
rev=0x02 hdr=0x00
    vendor   = 'Intel Corporation'
    device   = '82801CA/CAM (ICH3-S/ICH3-M) AC'97 Modem Controller'
    class    = simple comms
    subclass = generic modem

the machine is a t30 thinkpad.

i also have a pcmci 3COM modem card that shows up as:

sio4: <3Com 3CXM/3CCM556> at port 0x2f8-0x2ff irq 11 function 0 config 33
on pccard0
sio4: type 16550A
sio4: unable to activate interrupt in fast mode - using normal mode

not sure what normal mode is. and i don't see it in the pciconf.

i have a ppp.conf which looks exactly as the one in the handbook. when is
start ppp after a while i get the propmpt and after that if i type: dial
_tag_ the machine freezes...

the pci irqs in the bios are all 11. i guess i have to make them all auto?!

i just need one of these modems... just one....

thanks for any help...
